Azelaic acid gel is prescribed for the purpose of alleviating the symptoms associated with rosacea, including the presence of bumps, lesions, and swelling on the facial skin. Classified as a dicarboxylic acid medication, azelaic acid functions by reducing skin inflammation and redness to effectively manage rosacea. This medication additionally operates by eradicating pore-infecting bacteria and regulating the production of keratin, a natural substance that can contribute to the formation of acne, thereby providing effective treatment for acne.
